Fashionistas Feasting Frugally

It's the final Saturday of Bikeweek in Daytona. Forget trying to go out to dinner unless you want to wait until Monday to get a table. We wanted to have a nice girls night but we knew that would be impossible. We decided to have a Fashionista style Saturday dinner, but cooking it ourselves instead of going out.

What was on our menu this evening?
2 Bottles of cabernet
Baked Brie
Homemade Caesar Salad (dressing recipe courtesy of Beth Baldwin)
Filet Mignon
Mashed Potatoes
Sauteed Mushrooms
Strawberries and Cream (Tastefully Simple)

Our dinner turned out fab and if we had gone out to dinner to Stonewood Grill and Tavern, our bill would have been a whopping $160 after tip between the 2 of us. Want to know what we spent? $58!!! I love being frugal. See we can survive the economy and not give up our luxuries!

On NASCAR related news, Martin Truex Jr. was hospitalized tonight after practice for Kidney Stones. Word has it that they passed and he will be ok to drive tomorrow. Hopefully that is the only thing that passes him in Atlanta. :)
